12 Things Not to Do in Thailand

Thailand is often called the “land of smiles”, however, that does not mean that you shouldn’t be versed in some of the local customs before visiting. Here are 12 things NOT to do in Thailand.

1. Don’t Hug Monks
You'll find the monks are super friendly, but hands off, please. Monks are not allowed to touch women. Even on buses monks are not allowed to sit directly next to a woman. It is also forbidden to stand over or be positioned higher than a monk.

2. Never Use Your Feet
Feet are considered the lowest, dirtiest part of the body in many Asian cultures and the head is the highest. So do not hold doors open with your feet, point your feet towards the Buddha images or angle your feet towards people. Be especially mindful of your feet position when you're sitting or eating on the floor.

3. Don’t Disrespect the Royal Family
You will see many pictures commemorating them throughout the country and it is disrespectful to say anything negative about them. Don't stomp on a Thai coin as it rolls away as you're not only disrespecting the Crown, but also breaking rule 2.

4. Don’t Take Your Clothes Off
Walking around town in beach attire is considered impolite. Be extra-conscious of your attire when visiting temples. Dress preferably in white and women should wear long skirts or pants and have their shoulders covered.

5. Avoid Pointing with Your Fingers
When hailing for a tuk-tuk or beckoning a waiter, do not point
your fingers up. Never clap, snap your fingers, or whistle to get someone’s attention, as Thais regard it akin to calling a dog.

6. Don't Touch a Thai’s Head
Thais see the head as the highest part of the body so refrain from ruffling people's hair. If you happen to by accident, apologize immediately. Thai people will sometimes pat a child on the head, but as a Westerner it’s best not to. Now if you stomp on a coin you'll be breaking 3 rules!

7. Can’t Take Buddha Pictures Out of Thailand
It is technically illegal to take or send any pictures of Buddha out of the country! Nonetheless, many shop owners will still try to sell you pictures, and many tourists snap selfies in front of sacred Buddha statues. Just be discreet and respectful about it.

8. Don’t Lose Your Temper
Thais have a philosophy of keeping their cool;jai yen (cool heart). Thais see raising one’s voice as bad form. Don’t get frustrated, “mai pen rai” as the locals say.

9. Don’t Eat with a Fork
There are no specific dining times so visitors can enjoy cheap yet delicious food all day and night but watch your utensils. You may be given a fork and spoon, but it is only the spoon that touches one’s mouth. Also, chopsticks are only to be used when eating Chinese dishes.

10. Never Whistle at Night
Thais will become very uneasy if they hear a whistle after dark as they believe that whistling at night is bad luck because you’re calling the evil spirits.

11. Don’t Let a Tuk-Tuk Driver Take You To a Gem Shop
This is one of the biggest scams in the tourist areas of Thailand. Drivers will try to persuade you to visit a special gem shop, often a dodgy kick-back shop where tourists are harassed. In extreme cases, they are sometimes drugged and are cheated out of money in exchange for fake jewelry.

12. Don’t Shake Hands
Thais do not like to have personal contact when greeting strangers. Rather, they place both their open palms together at chest height and bow slightly. Do not bow to children or a person of lower status however, as you would be embarrassing them. If you are greeting a person of high importance, bow slightly deeper.

Now that you know how to properly respect the Thai culture, you can enjoy some of the most welcoming and hospitable people in the world.


6 Things I’ve Learned from Traveling through Thailand

1. Researching common scams before getting to your destination. This was my first time travelling through a less wealthy nation and I was suprised about how much the locals were not giving genuine advice to tourists and directing people towards scams or terrible ideas.Pretty much any local (especially taxi cab and tuktuk drivers) that approaches you, you should proceed with extreme caution as it’s pretty likely that person is attempting to get money out of you.
2. Google will not solve everything in Asia.I was under the impression that Google Maps always had the best route to get to my next destination, when in reality there are a lot of things that Google didn’t know. Bangkok for example is a very poorly designed city for tourism. All the big tourism attractions are located no where near any of the metro/subway lines. Busses are useless as traffic in Bangkok is horrible. Which means you are stuck using a taxi or a motocycle taxi if you want to get somewhere quickly. Google maps didn’t know that there was a ferry line on the river that goes straight to the tourism areas, and it’s also the fastest way to get out of the tourism areas as well. Google Maps is great in western countries but does very poorly in Asia.
3. Bangkok is a terrible travel destination. It’s Los Vegas without the casinos and with way more prostititues and ladyboys. I believe the city bring the worse out of people as the city tourism is dominated with sex, drugs and money. You’ll find travellers in the region recommend that you get out of Bangkok as fast as possible, as most people dislike it as a travel destination.Treat it as a transit hub, and move on to the Southern Islands or the northern regions.
4. Go out and meet new people. This was a trip where I was solo travelling and I was fortunate enough to meet absolutely wonderful people along the way. For me it was either meeting people enroute to a destination, meeting other travellers at a tourism attraction, or simply meeting new friends at a hostel. I feel like it’s always nice to learn other people stories along the way. Don’t be afraid to let go either. I’ve switched companions quite often as our travel intenaries didn’t align, but I’ve added people on Facebook and you never know when your interaries will magically align again later in life.
5. Carry a smaller backpack. I currently carry a 70L Osprey Aether backpack with an additional 15L Daylite Pack and I also bring my Manfrotto D1 backpack to carry all my drone and camera equipment when I travel. Weight is the number one issues I have when I travel and I believe that If I give myself extra space in my bag. Eventually it will be filled with something I shouldn’t be carrying on my adventures. Figure out how to save on weight, and you’ll have more energy on your adventures explore and discover you destination.
6. Domestic flights are insanely cheap in Thailand. Also discount regional airlines are also insanely cheap too. If you like to not plan your adventures and just go with the flow, often you can just show up at the airport with cash and be on a flight within 2 hours. This also works well with people that don’t have access to credit or the bank has blocked your account due to “fraudulent” activity. Alternatively if you liked the more planned approach through South East Asia, then I highly recommend you check out the ASEAN Pass from Air Asia. You need to book the flights 2 weeks in advance after purchasing your flight. But you gain 10 credits to fly to any chain of destinations you wish.
